The opensouce.com community is growing fast, and we're trying to figure out who we are and what we care about. The more we know about ourselves, the more relevant our content and discussions will be.

These polls aren't scientific, but they will give us a useful snapshot of of our growing community, so we can plan better for the future.

Feel free to tell us more about you in the comments.

Is anyone going to volunteer that they are a zealot? :)

Are you asking us if we want access to read source code? Are you asking us if we believe in software freedom? Come to think of it ... what does OPEN SOURCE mean this week?

As stated in my article on why do you still have an iphone, if there exists an open alternative that competes (or is on it's way to being competitive), I will almost always choose the open counterpart. So I'll still use closed source software (there has yet to be a game console that truly competes with the Wii, PS3 or 360 for example), but dream constantly of an open alternative.
